Canada has three soldiers still living from the first world war, the oldest 106. When the last Canadian soldier from WWI dies should he be given a state funeral? This happened in Australia last year, a state funeral with full military honours. No one has ever received a state funeral in Canada except prime ministers and governors-general. Apparently some Canadians oppose a state funeral because they argue such public ceremonies simply glorify war and killing. Do they have a case? Would you favour a state funeral?
